Plaza Paitilla Inn
Ranked #45 of 115 Hotels in Panama City
Reviewed 17 January 2012

We spent 3 days in Panama after our Punta Cana's vacations. Rooms are confortable but a little bit old-fashioned. Breakfast could be better but is acceptable.
People at reception desk are very friendly and helpful. If you want to do shopping, the hotel is two blocks away from Multiplaza Mall and Hard Rock Cafe Panama.

I booked this hotel due to its excellent location right off Balboa and modest price when compared to other hotels in the area (Radisson Decapolis, Intercontinental Miramar, Le Meridien). I specifically requested a room with a great view, and was very happy with room 1514 for that reason. You can walk across the street to Multicentro Mall.

Other than the great view and location, this hotel is pretty outdated. There is nothing really bad, but many minor annoyances such as slow drains, poorly functioning AC/TV remotes, old/moldy smell to it when you get off the elevator, and slightly uncomfortable beds/pillows. The included breakfast was good, and the pool was very refreshing.

To me, the view/location was worth the price. However, if I got a room without a view, I would have been seriously disappointed.

Room Tip: The hotel is round and only some rooms have a great view of the bay. Make sure you specifically req...

I have stayed here many times since 2000,what makes it special is the terrific panoramic views of the ocean and causeway,and the general comfort.
The swimming pool is OK and the new addition of a cocktail bar much appreciated !
More enjoyable staying here than many five star hotels in Panama.

Room Tip: Be polite at reception and patient.

The rooms, the food and the attention are good. Is a good option in Panama City. Is better if you can choose a room in a higher floor and now over the meeting rooms or near the avenue because those are too noisy.

Room Tip: Higher floor with bay view. other ones are too noisy

I've stayed at the plaza Paitilla inn many times on my business trips to Panama, the hotel its pretty old but looks like it has been updated probably a couple of times, so all the amenities are modern....the rooms are pretty good also, we stay here mainly because the hotel offers great value for the money, rooms are large, very clean, nice beds, minibar, mini fridge, modern flat screen tv, breakfast and wifi was also included in our room rate this time, service it's not the best we have had but it's good...location it's great....and if you get lucky and get a room with a view to the bay you are in for a treat.....so basically it's a great value for the money for this nice hotel...

Room Tip: Call to see if they can get you a room with a view to the bay....the view its spectacular....

We stayed for one (1) night in a room on the ninth (9th) floor (noise from street below).
The room was clean and updated with adequate in room amenties - buffet breakfast included.
Booked through Turista Internacional that included airport transfers.
Tour operator also organised 3.5 hrs Panama Canal tour and facilitated early return to hotel for check-out and airport transfer.
Staff did not speak much English, so communication was difficult.

this hotel is still a good value compared to the new 5 star market (riu, finistere, trump ...) that recently opened in panama. prices are around 120+10% tax for a room floor up to 18 ( there are just 19 floor and the last floor is 15 usd more for the 'junior suite' that i would not recommend) and now brekfast is included.
Floor 19 (PH) has a shower whereas all other floors have a tub ... go find the logic here ...!? well this is a fact.
The breakfast is good and abundant. The swimming pool is ok though not exceptional.
They don't accept the PLUS network for payment though this is what most panamenian use when they have a debit card ...
I still recommend, always call to check prices and ask for discount before booking.
